Overview of the Programme
The Mishcon Solicitor Apprenticeship is a six year programme. You will gain an LLB (Hons) in Legal Practice from The University of Law and at the end of the programme you will qualify as a solicitor. All of your tuition fees will be paid and best of all, you will earn a salary whilst you are training and gaining your qualification.
You will be based in Mishcon de Reya's London office, working alongside leading lawyers across six departments (Corporate; Dispute Resolution; Employment; Innovation; Private; and Real Estate). During the first four years you will complete four annual rotations and in the final two years you will join the graduate trainees and complete four six month rotations. Throughout the six years you will be working for four days per week and spend one day studying with The University of Law.
This apprenticeship will take six years to complete, however after four years you will have obtained an LLB. In the fifth and sixth year you will complete your Solicitors Qualifying Exams (SQE).
Academic and competency training will be provided by The University of Law. The ULaw solicitor apprenticeship programme aims to equip apprentices with a thorough understanding of the core legal subjects and combine them with an in-depth practical application.
